Cannabis can help!
This headline can either make you look away or read on and if you fall in the latter group there is a possibility that you or your loved ones suffer from any one/all of these problems:
- Debilitating/Chronic pain
- Side effects from treatment or medication
- Chronic or complex medical conditions
But most importantly you feel like you’ve tried everything and another pill/therapy won’t help. Then I’d like to reiterate – Cannabis can help!
MC Wellness Group’s sole aim is to help you figure out the endocannabinoid system that will help you understand how to safely use cannabis. We have designed a format that targets 2 categories, cannabis education for the patient and patient service program for the healthcare provider. This helps to create an integrated atmosphere where the patient as well as the medical professional are both knowledgeable and hence make informed choices.
The questions that plague most patients
Fear of dosing
The dosage of the drug
Shackled by the stigma
The strain of drug to choose
Worried of the medication interactions and its side effects
The questions that plague most health professionals
How cannabinoids and terpenes interact with different medications
Side effects of the drug
With the help of MC Wellness Group’s experienced and certified medical cannabis consultants, both patients and medical professionals can get the maximum benefit of cannabis with minimum reactions. You no longer have to choose between wellness and safety.
It’s important to review cannabis therapy with a health professional that understands how cannabis might interact with specific conditions or medications to ensure safe and effective cannabis therapy outcomes.
Our goal is to educate our clients on how to schedule or to manage their cannabis regimen to reduce any possible factors that may impede the efficacy of their cannabis therapy.
Are There Medication Interactions?
It is critical to inform all of your healthcare professionals that you are using cannabis products. Healthcare professionals include your doctors, nurses, and pharmacists. As part of the consultation, we will evaluate your current medication/supplement list to check for medication interactions.
Can I Overdose?
Taking more cannabis than the ECS is accustomed to having may result in unpleasant side effects, including sedation and decreased function, or severe forms of nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.
To avoid potential side effects, begin with a low starting dose, increase slowly over time, and use individual responses to guide when and how much to increase.
If side effects develop, decrease to the previously tolerated dose for a couple of days before attempting to increase the dosage again to build a tolerance. The use of medical cannabis may initially cause a worsening of symptoms if the dose is increased too quickly.
Other adverse effects or not having any beneficial results can be due to the plant source, extraction methods, and the manufacturing process. How to choose a quality product is discussed during our consultations.
Are There Side Effects?
Possible adverse effects of cannabis that are less common include: increased heart rate, increased appetite, sleepiness, dizziness, decreased blood pressure, dry mouth/dry eyes, decreased urination, hallucination, paranoia, anxiety, fatigue, suicidal ideation, nausea, asthenia impaired attention, memory, and psychomotor performance.
Inhaled cannabis may trigger worsening symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema, cardiac disease, and alcohol or other drug dependence.
In those with a diagnosed psychosis, some forms of cannabis use may exacerbate the risk of suicide, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or other psychotic conditions
Is Cannabis Addictive?
In those using cannabis daily for months, cessation may produce mild physical withdrawal symptoms including insomnia, loss of appetite and restlessness initially, then irritability/anger, vivid and unpleasant dreams after a week
